And I Thought Chicago was the Windy City

Last night and early this morning it was very windy out and the temperature plummeted. I was in the base starting to work on filing our taxes and I could hear the wind swirling out side thought the furnace. It was crazy. I can't recall the last time it has been this windy. I had to drive the van to work today because my car doors were frozen shut. Now Delilah is trapped at home without a vehicle to drive. Not that you really would want to go anywhere today with the weather like it is.

Need some interesting cufflinks?

The Open House

I am going to rant a little. Today we went to an open house that was advertised in the paper. We got there at exactly Noon, when it was supposed to start. No one was there. We waited five minutes and still no one. We decided to go eat lunch and come back. We did and still no one was there. There was a note on the door that said the open house was canceled. What a waste of time and gas. It looked like there had been several people there - the Realtor missed a good opportunity. Maybe next time we can get in so I can look at the plumbing fixtures.

Getting in Shape

We are still working at getting in shape. We went back to Ball Aerobics and this time there was like 15 women in the class and me. We got there just as the class started so we had to rush around, get settled in, get a ball and try to catch up. I wore sweat pants over a pair of gym shorts to the gym and planned to take the sweats off but since we were late I ended up wearing them for the entire class. Let me tell you - they don't call them sweats for nothing. I was dripping sweat by the end of class. It is a good workout and even a little fun. I definitely feel the burn today.

When I get buff I am going to wear a gold chain like those macho guys in the weight room.

The Cat

I am not fond of Delilah's cat. She has had the cat since she was 23 so I guess I am stuck with the little fur ball until she kicks the bucket. The cat threw up on the basement floor the other day. I left it there for Delilah to clean up. Gross, I know, but I draw the line with throw up. I clean the cat litter but I am not cleaning cat puke.

Anyways, I needed to use the words cat bed so I thought I would talk about the cat.

Ball Aerobics

Today Delilah and I went to work out at the local Y, we (she) decided on ball aerobics for us to partake in together for this session of classes. I had no idea what this class was about. I was nervous to say the least. So we walked into the class together and I am the only guy. There are like 6 of us all together, I am kind of glad it is smaller class. Less people to embarrass myself in front of. I was always a step behind the instructor. About 5 minutes into the class I looked over to Delilah and told her "You owe me." I'm thinking about picking out the next series of our class. How does power lifting sound? I think I am going to enjoy this class, I didn't know how out of shape I really was. I already knew I was not flexible and this class proved it to me even more. I guess you have to work hard to get back into shape.

A New Year

Well, I am sure, if you keep reading this blog, that you think I have fallen off the face of the earth. Don't worry. I am still here. You have kept up with Delilah's blog you know that I've been given more responsibilities at work. This is a good thing. This also keeps me busier. I am handling it well so far and I think Delilah is as well. I can not believe that it is 2008 already. Time does fly by. I think the year goes by quicker now than ever before. It seems just like yesterday Delilah and I were getting prepared to go on our honeymoon cruise in the Caribbean. Look at us now. We have 3 children and seem to be busier than ever. So if you are reading this, thanks for staying with me. I will try to keep you posted about what's new and exciting in my life.
